    We have published a simple HOW-TO to setup a very simple mailing list without using Mailman, it works as a one-way distribution list by simply sending a message to the list e-mail address.

    You can read the article in full at:

    I hope that one day cPanel would have such a feature built-in.

    That's a good how-to, but presumably it'd still allow someone to spoof the $header_from address, which would allow them to send out an email to the list?

    Perhaps you could modify your how-to to check the subject line for a "password" of some sort, and then remove that password and send the email?

    You are correct, someone could spoof the $header_from address and get through the Exim filter.

    I have just begun reading on Exim filtering language, if someone here who have more experience writing Exim filters can provide some guidance on how to absolutley verify the $header_from address or use a password of some sort i would appreciate it.
